Ambleside Online Shopping in Ambleside
Specialist shopping in Ambleside and Grasmere
Style, quality and individuality
from independent shops in
Ambleside and Grasmere

Car parking in Ambleside
Because Ambleside is a small town, we have not been colonised by High Street chain stores. But because we cater for millions of tourists, independent retailers here have been able to develop successful shops selling a wide range of goods not easy to find elsewhere.

Also, because our visitors generally appreciate high standards, both in our Lakeland landscape and in our catering and hospitality, the range of goods on offer in our shops is remarkable in its quality and value.

Not only that - many goods are unique to this area, being craftsman-made in Ambleside and nearby towns and villages.
So if you appreciate style, quality and individuality, make sure you visit the shops below.

Many sell online and most are also real shops you can visit when next in the Lakes.
